Central Queensland

The branch is an active community of business leaders who are committed to building long-term sustainable growth in the Rockhampton, Yeppoon and Gladstone regions that make up the Central Queensland area.

Around nine per cent of the region’s workforce are directly employed by the development industry. In the Central Queensland area, the branch advocates for members by facilitating regular council discussions. We firmly recognise the important role our industry plays in the economic health of these cities.
